Oh dear

Update: Perused the web a bit and have basically decided that this story is not credible. The source is not credible and the claim is unsubstantiated. Moved below the fold. Consider it redacted. Still, it reminded me of this:

Via KeepAndBearArms, if this is true there’s some ‘splaining to do:

Last month, Republican Congressional leaders filed into the Oval Office to meet with President George W. Bush and talk about renewing the controversial USA Patriot Act.

Several provisions of the act, passed in the shell shocked period immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, caused enough anger that liberal groups like the American Civil Liberties Union had joined forces with prominent conservatives like Phyllis Schlafly and Bob Barr to oppose renewal.

GOP leaders told Bush that his hardcore push to renew the more onerous provisions of the act could further alienate conservatives still mad at the President from his botched attempt to nominate White House Counsel Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.

I dont give a goddamn, Bush retorted. Im the President and the Commander-in-Chief. Do it my way.

Mr. President, one aide in the meeting said. There is a valid case that the provisions in this law undermine the Constitution.

Stop throwing the Constitution in my face, Bush screamed back. Its just a goddamned piece of paper!

The writer claims three people confirmed this account. Imagine, Bush saying goddamn. Oh, no, that’s not the news. Not sure if it’s true but it’s making the Google News rounds.

    Like I said on my post. It is a Dan Rather moment. “Fake but accurate”.

    Politics is a rough sport. Nobody knows that better than Bush. If he saw this, his biggest reaction would probably be that it’s a rather clumsy smear. It’s a bad dramatization. It’s incredible on its face, and it lacks a punchline or a hard point.

    I couldn’t care less if it’s true. Whether he said it or not, the reality is the same: Bush doesn’t let the Constitution stand between him and his desired policies.

    Some locals want it to be true:

    I do not understand why people want any President to fail. That would be a bad thing for the country wouldn’t it?

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
